There are many tricks to getting the most out of COM+, and this article offers the author's top 10. The tips cover the importance of transaction processing, the use of the COM+ catalog, and the design of three-tier distributed systems. Writing components using the correct threading model, knowing when to use compensating transactions, and the importance of stress testing early in the process also make the list. Other indespensible suggestions emphasize the importance of recognizing where an object's state is located, choosing appropriate authentication levels for COM+ applications, using Queued Components correctly, and implementing object pooling.

How to run two windows exe installer at a time.
sql 2008 installed, but didn't get pop up for windows installer 4.5, though intallation complete, but still wants to confirm the windows installer version, however, the windows 2008 seems not like w2k3 to show all windows components you installed, I only
see .net 3.5sp1 on the appwiz.cpl
I am ready with Softwares ...I want procede with Installation of SQL Server 2008 R2.
I am Planning to Update nodes with
".Net framework 3.5 Installation and Windows Installer 4.5 " in Windows 2003 Sp4 Cluster and I am going to start with Passive node.
Before going to do installation I will take care any thing......Please suggest me.
We are getting the following error when trying to install SQL Server (2005 and 2008) software on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise machine:
"The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in safe mode, or if the Windows Installer in not correctly installed. Contact you support personnel for assistance."
We had installed SQL Server 2005 previously, but are now trying to install other components from the SQL Server installation materials. We get the same error with the SQL Server 2005 and 2008 installers.
In our reasearch we've found references to corrupt or missing files and incorrect registry entries, and from the advice in those posts we have:
- Reregistered msi.dll
- Reregistered msiexec.exe
- Checked that the image path registry setting is correct
- Compared MD5 values for msi.dll and misexec.exe to those from a functioning server.
- imported registry settings from; Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msisrver, from a properly functioning server
but have not been able to correct the issue.
